    I see a lot of consternation about Channel 9. You think you're getting rid of me that easily? Heh!

    We're going to be spending a day with Bill Gates by the end of the month.

    Channel 9 is not dead. Not by a long shot.

    One of the reasons I could leave Microsoft is cause I knew Channel 9 was in good hands.

    What you brought to microsoft was beyond blogging or rss or videos etc
    it was a person everyone could belive, that was human, that wrote great moonshots
    Even hiring duran duran to beat apple was human Wink

    so while its great that c9 is not dead - it has truely truely lost a major part of it's soul..

    (not that everyone else isnt great - but who knows adam, jeff or charles outside of the coffeehouse?
    edit* oops i always forget to mention humancompiler[y])

    best of luck robert - the celebrity that formerly started/promoted channel9
    *say hi to prince for me Wink

    No wonder we didn't hear much from Robert lately.  Thanks for all you did and I'm looking forward to seeing the camera turned on Robert.

    Also ca we get a tour of MSNBC.com that run out of Seattle as well?

    So will someone turn the camera on you and do a farewell interview?

    At least you arent going to work for google.  I;'d have lost all respect for you if you went to Google.

    Good luck Robert, update your e-mail address soon.

    Sad I sent my postcard to you on Saturday Robert, how do I get my C9 Guy now?

    All seriousness, all the best for yourself and the family.

    It would be great for Microsoft (and us) if either the new blogging evangilist or better still BillG himself interviewed you before you left Microsoft as part thank you and part 'Robert on the other side of the camera farewell'

    I 'really' did send the postcard on Saturday Sad

    Does anyone know where they keep the lifesize 9-guy they used in the videos last year? I want to put the costume on and go whack Blatz on the head.
